BRIGHOUSE Town manager Paul Quinn says Saturday’s opponents Tadcaster Albion are tipped for promotion from the Baris NCEL Premier Division.

However he says his team travels there with confidence after the morale boosting home win last week over Parkgate.

“They are a strong side and we go there as underdogs which suits us and we will not be just making up the numbers,” said a bouyant Quinn.

“It will be tough but we have the squad of players now to compete and at the end of the day we want a result from the game to keep us up there.

“The squad is starting to settle down and we have no injury worries from last Saturday’s game.

“We have 20 players now capable of challenging for a first team place and it’s a healthy situation to be in,” he said.

Tadcaster, who took FC Halifax Town close at the Shay in the FA Cup last month, are currently third in the table, four points ahead of sixth-placed Town, who have also played a game more than them.

Tadcaster won 1-0 at Staveley MW last Saturday and so this Saturday’s clash should be a close and tight affair.

Town have no game now on Saturday November 18 as Long Eaton are still involved in the FA Vase and the game has been moved to Wednesday night for a long trip into Derbyshire.

The West Riding County FA second round tie away to FC Halifax Town has been provisionally arranged for Tuesday, November 29, at the Shay (7.45pm).

Town’s reserve team entertain Lower Hopton on Saturday (2pm) in the West Riding CAL Premier Division and the club’s U-19 side are away on monday at Yorkshire Amateurs (7.45pm).
